In a year that saw the first Le Mans 24 hour race and the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, 1923 was also the year when we were first established in Central London as ‘F.L. Rouse & Co’. Here is a brief summary of the milestones that have followed.
We were first established in 1923 in Central London as ‘F.L. Rouse & Co’.
We moved to our new home in Beaconsfield, 55 Station Road, where we have continued to support businesses and individuals ever since.
We became part of Vantis Plc, who were ranked 13th in Accountancy Age’s Top 100 in 2010. This saw us combine 4 well-established practices into the business, doubling our size and bringing significant experience. These firms included Booth Anderson Chester (Harrow), Brewer Higgins (Marlow), Wagstaff Chartered Accountants (Bracknell) and Wheawill and Sudworth (Victoria).
Following a management buyout from Vantis Plc by the Beaconsfield Partners in June 2010, we once again became an independent firm and ‘Rouse Partners’ was born.
We were awarded ‘Large Practice of the Year’ in the AccountingWEB Practice Excellence Programme following an independent client survey and judging from an expert panel. This award ranked our client satisfaction level amongst the highest in the UK.
Following significant year on year growth we were recognised and listed in Accountancy Age’s Top 100 accounting firms for the first time as an independent practice.
Following further growth we moved up in the Accountancy Age Top 100 accountancy firms to 84th position. We also were Finalists in the British Accountancy Awards for ‘Most Innovative Practice – Mid-tier’ and our Partner, Bindi Palmer was winner of the British Indian Award for ‘Services to Accounting’, with judges noting her passion for international business and with Bindi seeing off tough competition from six other finalists, three of whom were from ‘Big 4’ accounting firms.
